June 4th 2021 First Friday Art Walk

The Art Walk in Ukiah is back! Please join the following locations in June. 
Corner Gallery 201 S State Street UkiahRECLAIMED Art Show at the Corner Gallery (June)Local artists Laura Fogg, Betty Lacy, Margo Frank and Rosie Saxe Morris are working to create a mixed-media art show and interactive environmental event for the month of June. It will be in the front windows of the Corner Gallery in Ukiah. The title of the show is “RECLAIMED.” And it’s planned to create a broader impact than an ordinary art show could possibly have. It will be an event, designed to take a provocative look at the issues of plastic waste in our culture, climate change, and how each of us can be agents of transformation by doing small things that make a difference. All of the art on display is created from cast-off and reclaimed materials, addresses the topic of plastic pollution, or both. From the Artists: “The reasons we are doing this are many: we are all artists, we care deeply about the world we live in, and we all have things to say about both problems and solutions. We want to use our artistic voices to make things happen.” The art show will open on June 4th at the Corner Gallery in Ukiah, and continue through the entire month of June. The gallery is located at 201 S State St and is open 11-5 on Tuesday through Saturday. There WILL be a modified First Friday on June 4th. No wine or appetizers will be served on account of COVID concerns, but we will have music and lots of new art to enjoy throughout the gallery.
